I found the following email from my HR department at work this morning. I have been vaccinated and have had the booster, but I have a problem with this. I sent HR a polite email suggesting that at this point this was not a good idea. Not even sure it is legal. What say you?
“In order to determine the best route in moving forward as a private employer, we are asking ALL staff to provide proof of current vaccination status.
Please see HR no later than Friday, December 3rd Employees are NOT to report/submit this information to their supervisors. Report proof ONLY to the Human Resources Department. HR will need to physically see your documentation, and a copy will be retained your confidential file.
You must provide one of the following:
- a copy of the record of immunization from a health care provider or pharmacy;
- a copy of the COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card;
- a copy of medical records documenting the vaccination;
- a copy of immunization records from a public health or State immunization information system; or
- a copy of any other official documentation verifying vaccination with information on the vaccine name, date(s) of administration, and the name of health care professional or clinic site administering vaccine.
If you are currently unvaccinated you must also make HR aware of your vaccination status. The HR Department will keep all personal vaccination information confidential.
Until Florida employers receive further clarification of our obligations, we will only be gathering vaccination status at this time.
If you have any questions please contact HR. “
